Good Friday! Not much will change in our weather pattern through the weekend. Sandwiched between severe storms over the Plains and a tropical storm off the coast of the Carolinas, we will see temps climbing to about 90 in the afternoon with only a few showers and storms over the Blue Ridge Mtns. east of Chattanooga.
The average high is about 80 for this time of year. Today, we will climb to 90 with mostly sunny skies. During the late afternoon we will see isolated storms over the Blue Ridge. Tonight, we can expect clear skies with a low of 63.
Saturday will run up to 89. The same pattern will be in place allowing for sunshine to abound with only the isolated storm late in the day east of town.
Mother's Day will be the same. While these temps are more like what we see in July/August, the humidity levels will not be out of control. It will be a little muggy, but not oppressively so as we would see during summer.
A cold front will finally pass through Tuesday. We will see a few showers and storms from that, but, more importantly, cooler air will follow in it's wake. We will be in the low 80s through the second half of next week.
